Spring colour for my stash

I've been stocking up on lots of supplies this week, and while buying lots of much more sensible things I just couldn't resist treating myself to this giant roll of polkadot ribbon...


... and this yummy felt trim:


I'm going to use the ribbon to tie up bundles of felt and orders that need giftwrapping, but I've got no idea what I could use the trim for (it was just too gorgeous to resist!). It's about 20cm wide and I've got a couple of metres of it so there's lots to play with... Any ideas?

I was thinking maybe using it as part of a notebook cover, though I have no idea how.

I'd use the trim as an accent on a pincushion, decorative cushion, or a plain kraft gift tag or thank you note. Such a rich, happy colour!

Ooo, that yellow trim is lovely. Maybe some kind of bracelet/cuff?

It would look lovely and really enhance the pattern to back it with black. I don't know what you could do with it then - the note book cover sounds like a good idea. I would suggest a hairband if it was narrower - 20cm is VERY wide!

that yellow is wonderful!! perhaps it would work if you covered a pen pot (lots of peoples use old baked bean tins) with it...perhaps use a backing fabric in a contrasting colour...
or edging on a notice board?

I love the yellow - I would want to display it in my home... maybe on cushions or as a table runner - with black or brown background colour

I was picturing it as trim on the bottom of a white skirt for spring, but I could also see if on a cushion or purse or on the bottom of some white curtains. I definitely see if with white as it's so springy and airy.

I would use it to decorate a present of potted Spring Bulbs....it's beautiful!

Skirt or Jacket trim, or maybe waist detail or a wide belt? I like the idea of book covers too.

Oooh that trim is pretty!

Trim and ribbon are both fab! I would use the trim on a lampshade or cushion. :D
